    That is great, thank you for your work. But what about the new fetures (like the serch for other posts by this member feture) that don't appear on the old board? And how would we go about tweaking it?
    that makes no logic

    The skin doesn't effect the features. It only provides the look. So the problem I could come across is a new feature that requires a new button the old skin didn't have. For example I'll have to make arrow buttons (you see them to the left of the Edit and Quote buttons above each post... kind of a silly feature if you ask me) because the last board didn't have them.

    the EDIT button is on all posts...but you can only edit yur own. it ges annoying. i agree with JLAP on the first page. we need a whole selection of skins like on the CPUK forum. over all its ok. it needs some getting used to and then some tweaks...

    It looks like this forum software isn't really used much by the general public. There aren't skins because no one has really cared enough to make any for it. phpBB is probably the public favorite... there're huge libraries of skins and mods for it. That's what CPUK is built with.

    If Terraforums uses a MySQL database and you guys were feeling really brave, we could attempt to convert it to phpBB. Without touching the existing forum until the new one was totally functional of course (built in parallel).

    Right now I'm updating a dummy forum to slowly apply the new skin. It won't totally look like Terraforums because a lot of the modifications to it have nothing to do with the skin, but it's getting there. Unfortunately the base skin from 3.1.2a doesn't look quite like the old forum... it must have been modified after the installation.
